What to See at Mezquita Cordoba

cordoba bell tower
Bell Tower

The Bell Tower was originally built as a minaret for the mosque. During the 16-17th century, a stronger structure was added around it and its height was increased. It was then adorned with the bells captured from Santiago de Compostela Cathedral. At 54m tall, it gives visitors a bird’s eye view of the premises.

court of oranges
Court of Oranges

The Court of Oranges (Patio de los Naranjos) is the entrance to the mosque. Featuring palm, cypress, and, of course, orange trees, this courtyard also has beautiful fountains. The orange trees were imported by Abd al-Rahman I and added to this patio in the 10th century. There are a total of 98 orange trees in the Court of Oranges.

cordoba mihrab
Mihrab

The Mihrab is used in mosques to identify the wall that faces Mecca (qibla). The mihrab in the mosque features a beautifully gilded arch. The mihrab was extended by Al-Hakim II around 960. A small octagonal room, the entrance is in the shape of a horseshoe arch and features mosaic from the Byzantine tradition.

cordoba mosque hypostle hall
Prayer Hall

The hypostyle prayer hall is made with over 800 columns filling the vast expanse. The columns are made with the remains of the Roman temple that existed before the construction of the mezquita, along with onyx, marble, and porphyry, among other materials. It is also famous for its double arches — the horseshoe arch with a semi-circular arch atop it — made of red brick and stone.

History of Cordoba Mosque

Originally a Roman temple, the structure at Cordoba was replaced by a Christian Visigoth church. This church was split into two parts — one remained a church and the other was converted into a mosque —when Andalusia was taken over by the Moors.  

In 784, Abd ar-Rahman I bought the church, and construction was started to create a new mosque where the Visigoth church once stood, and was the jewel in  Abd al-Rahman I’s new capital, Córdoba. It was re-converted into a church during the Reconquista in 1236, when Christians recaptured Cordoba. Sprawling over an area of 24,000 square meters, it is one of Spain’s most famous landmarks and is visited by over a million people annually.
